Flowers Brighten the Day for IAM Member

The Union Plus Flower Discount Program has helped to make it easier for Yvette Sheenan to order floral arrangements and gifts. She enjoys seeing ideas for floral arrangements from the Teleflora website because they show her the latest in arrangements. She especially appreciates the “deal of the day,” which showcases flowers that are in season at a great price. 


As a part of International Association of Machinists Local 727N member Yvette Sheehan’s job as executive assistant to the president at Guide Dogs of America, she orders flowers or gifts.

The Union Plus Flower Discount Program—and the Teleflora website—has helped make her job easier.

“Part of my job sometimes includes ordering flowers and Union Plus is my bookmark for flowers,” Sheehan said.

Since GDA is a nonprofit that supplies guide dogs free of charge, every dollar counts.

“It is good to know that Union Plus has negotiated rates with discounts giving union members the best bang for our buck,” she said.

But perhaps nothing beats the online ordering convenience.  

“I have received exceptional customer service,” she said. “If I order something and the local vendor doesn’t have it, I get an email. And if I don’t respond to the email, then I receive a phone call asking for an alternative.”

Order beautiful flower arrangements and gift baskets through the Union Plus discount program and make someone’s day. Flowers are perfect for birthdays and holidays, and is a lovely way to say, "Get well," "Thank you!” or “Congrats.” Union members, retirees and family members save 20% to 25% by visiting unionplus.org/flowers or calling 888-667-7779.
